Quality not quantity

Calm and warm again but with intermittent cloud cover coming and going through the morning which extended the usual couple of hours catching time to at least 09:00; still only managed 22 new birds but the total today did include a cracking Greenish Warbler - only the third to be ringed here after two last spring.
   Other birds caught included 3 Icterine Warblers, 2 Garden Warblers, 2 Blackcaps, a Lesser Whitethroat, 4 Whitethroats, 3 Willow Warblers, 3 Chiffchaffs and the first 2 juvenile Greenfinches of the year.

Greenish Warbler
There wasn't too much else to shout about through the day - June is all about quality not quantity after all; although a Caspian Tern did fly west past the station and five singing Common Rosefinches were counted between the station and town and included a smart red one at Frisenfelt.
